Rheology-modifying wax adds more value

Aquatix 8421 is a rheology-modifying wax emulsion to improve orientation of effect pigments in water-borne systems. It reduces cloudiness/mottling and provides anti-settling properties during storage and application. Compared to clays and acrylic thickeners, it is easier to handle and incorporate. It is less sensitive to co-solvents than polyurethane-based thickeners. It can improve the brilliance of effect pigment slurries that are co-solvent free. The material is an emulsion of a modified ethylene-vinyl-acetate (EVA) copolymer wax. Pre-dilution with water is not required when processing.
